I have a small program which reads a simple XML file written by me with customised tags. The problem is whenever OnCharacter method of the content handler is triggered it reads only a part of the string between the tags, but if i interchange the xml content it works fine, can anyone out tre help me out in this regard .

There's no workaround - that's how SAX works. You'll need to collect the characters (maybe in a StringBuilder) until the element ends or a nested element starts.

just to add to the above post, the sax parser cannot guarantee that it has reached the end of the field.

http://www.saxproject.org/apidoc/org/xml/sax/ContentHandler.html#characters(char[],%20int,%20int)

so yeah, I tend to use a stack of stringbuilders to ensure that you've reached the end of the field, and in the endElement function, pop the field. That way you ensure you have the full value.
 
Do the next thing next. That’s a pretty good rule. Read the tiny ad, that’s a pretty good rule, too.
